A Higher Deity?

I can say, I've been to the other side, no angels, no devils, just darkness ....When people say stuff like "God was working through him" etc, I believe it just means he was trying to do selfless acts for someone else.Basically, one day we each were born, one day we each shall die, the only important thing we can do is make the most of now!!The meaning of life:Have as much fun as you can, without impacting adversely on other people's fun.

What do you find most difficult living with a brain injury
I am a miracle, I just wanna talk with ppl who can sympathize, not just empathize with me.

My favorite saying:

People say to me all the time, "I know exactly what your going through"

But truth be told, they don't have a f**king clue!
